Nobody enjoys flying, unless you are on the Super First Class Haute Couture Flight direct to the lap of luxury. Karl Lagerfeld and his wacky sense of imagination made a mock plane complete with first class seating and a blue runway fit for even the tallest model to walk down and show off their couture.
Chanel really took off this season with the use of highly technical fabrics made into a more casual silhouette. The looks were often equipped with slit pockets along the dropped waist and short ruched skirts attached to dresses made from theatrically shiny materials in sapphire, sparkling onyx, and opal white.
The other strong silhouette was the wide boat necked collar that went from shoulder to shoulder and created a near shapeless pillar of fabric that went beyond a shift dress and more toward a tube dress. The looser skirts completed this look and enhanced the straight look even further.
Midway through the show the sleeves were billowed out and the legs became wide creating a ballooned type look that made for an interestingly wearable look that would work great for dinner parties, Oscar red carpets, or just shopping for more Chanel. The last thing worth noting was the double breasted dresses, coats, and jackets that are such a huge trend this haute couture season.
